MSF Day 2

Thanks for all the positive vibes, it must have paid off. I passed the course but that , , BLUE BOX got me every-time. I could make one end but not the other. Sometimes a foot down, other times outside the box. Good throttle/clutch control is key to passing that i think. The katana I was using was kinda of difficult to control in the tight turns. Anyway I'm on my way to take the DMV written test and should have no problem passing that with the training I received from Awesome Cycles. Hopefully by the end of the day I can honestly say I am a legally certified motorcyclist.
